Kick Plates are protective sheets that are attached to a door to protect it from impact and daily use.
Sizes and Applications
Kick plates are available in different sizes and shapes to protect the door from objects that would cause damage. Larger plates are used within medical facilities to protect doors from damage due to stretchers or beds that are moved about. Smaller plates are used for foot level protection such as kicking or wet mops.
